On The Tracks of a Filmmaker: Profile of Henry Jaglom; Interactive Menus; Scene Selection Funny, piercing, touching, and wonderful... a provocative tribute to women!
From beloved cult auteur Henry Jaglom (Going Shopping, Festival in Cannes, Last Summer in the Hamptons), recognized by the Los Angeles Times as “the definitive independent, one of America’s most important filmmakers,” comes a sophisticated modern comedy about women, love, neuroses and the food that binds them all…Henry Jaglom’s EATING!
At a fashionable house party in Southern California, a parade of women mingle in joint celebration of their friends’ milestone birthdays: Kate has just turned 30, Helene is 40, and Sadie will soon be 50. When Helene’s houseguest Martine–a sexy French filmmaker–turns her camera on the partygoers to capture live human behavior, discussions turn from light and airy to heartfelt and personal. Playfully musing on their body image hang-ups, eating disorders, relationships, and a conformist society obsessed with beauty, even the group’s untouched slices of cake provide insight into the love-hate relationship between femmes and food. As one guest confesses: “I’m still looking for a man who can excite me as much as a baked potato.”
Loosely scripted and voyeuristically crafted in a cinéma vérité style to allow its actresses to be spontaneous and honest, Henry Jaglom’s EATING is a hilarious and thought-provoking smorgasboard of “biting” observations!
